Mystic Circle unleash music video for cover version of “Death Metal”

There’s no time to rest for re-united German black metal outfit Mystic Circle: while obsessively forging the follow-up to their self-titled 2022 album (released on February 4th via Atomic Fire Records), the duo – Beelzebub (vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards) and A. Blackwar (vocals, guitars, drums, keyboards) — have unleashed a brand new digital single, a cover version of Possessed’s iconic track “Death Metal” which could only be found as bonus track on the physical formats of the aforementioned record so far. 

Beelzebub comments:

“Possessed have always been a huge influence for Mystic Circle: not only being the inventors of satanic death metal but also by delivering a scene defining masterpiece like Seven Churches they are one of the top 3 bands of the genre that have to be honoured the most besides Venom and Deicide in our opinion. In addition, Peter König added great guest vocals to our interpretation. He’s the singer of German act Gomorrha which also had an undeniable impact on us in our youthhood which makes the whole thing really come full circle for Mystic Circle.”
